“Remember him? Nah me neither” – A lot of Newcastle United fans are stumped by claims made by ESPN pundit Alejandro Moreno – someone who barely any of them have ever heard of.

Moreno has claimed that Newcastle will be relegated along with Norwich City and Watford – a reasonable suggestion.

However, his reasoning for why he thinks the Toon will go down is beyond stupid.

Moreno claims that Newcastle will go down because their “Luck will run out.”

That is it, a pundit who is paid to offer his analysis on the Premier League believes that a team will be relegated because they won’t be lucky this season.

The past two years then, where Newcastle finished 10th and 13th, were down to pure luck?

So, nothing to do with Rafael Benitez’s tactical plans or some shrewd signings in the transfer market.

It is outstanding that a pundit can get away with a statement like this.

Newcastle may well go down this season, but it will have nothing to do with luck.

These Newcastle fans are rightly fuming with Moreno.

See the best of the reaction below.

Many Toon fans cannot believe that luck was even suggested.

Other Newcastle supporters have never heard of Moreno.

Finally, some Newcastle fans cannot believe how stupid this statement is.
